This has to be a prototype. I cannot believe this would have been released 'as is' in 1983 when coding standards were already much higher. It's also the only ATARI 8bit credit for Ron Merson. This might have been done in-house (at Durell) as a very quick port attempt before being abandoned. BTW- No joystick support?

Additional Comments

Updated on April 25th, 2021. Some 37 years after its initial release on other platforms, a copy of this title was found in an eBay auction with other more common tapes! The game was announced in a number of magazines and by the publisher itself but the Atari version had remained at large until today. The lack of instructions, cheap packaging and fiddly gameplay would hint towards a prototype. Until more is known or another similar cassette shows up, we will be leaving the status as such.

Use START / SELECT / OPTION keys to play.

Many thanks to wesmond for scanning the tape / dumping this program!
